Mary Aigner's Departure

Mary Aigner, Program Director for KZYX&Z, recently announced that she has decided it is time, after 22 years, to hand over the reins. She has some interesting opportunities that she wishes to explore, though she will continue to be involved with the radio station, including hosting her "Dead Air" program. As she told the volunteer programmers and her friends:

"It's been a great pleasure and an honor to work here, and I can't think of a more interesting or gratifying place to work. I'm constantly amazed by your talent, passion, and commitment to the cause of creating the best community radio we can, in service of the people of Mendocino County." 

We wish Mary great success in her future endeavors. We will miss her.

Former Mendocino County Supervisor and long-time aide to Congressman Mike Thompson, Kendall Smith, will be our guest on "All About Money" on Friday, January 23, at 9 AM.

We'll discuss Kendall's career in public service. We'll also discuss the most pressing issues that face Mendocino County from Kendall's perspective.

Finally, we'll discuss a an exciting new project of which Kendall is an important participant.

At its Annual Conference held in Pittsburgh, PA in July 2012, the National Association of Counties (NACo)  approved an important policy resolution for the Reduction and Cleanup.  It can be found on the NACo website.

As a member of the Environment, Energy and Land Use Committee, Kendall Smith  was honored to introduce the item to the full Committee. This was a collaborative proposal involving the states of Washington, Oregon, Hawaii, and California.  These Western states were pleased that after introduction and discussion, the Committee vote to support this timely resolution was unanimous. The resolution was then approved as official NACo policy by the full voting membership at the Annual Business Meeting.

The resolution gives national policy support to local jurisdictions, states, and federal agencies to advocate for enhanced resources for marine debris cleanup, including tsunami debris, and support for passage of local bans on single-use plastic bags. 

Again, the resolution may be found on the NACo website. Additionally, recent press coverage on the growing tsunami debris problem is included. Interested persons will find this information useful especially as it relates to pending or future legislation and as an advocacy tool to assist in funding strategies for marine protection efforts. 

Interested persons may also contact NACo directly for additional information. You may contact also contact Kendall Smith directly.

Kendall Smith wishes to thank NACo for its historical and future support for marine habitat protection efforts, including the acknowledgment to the significant challenges marine debris presents to local government.
